Use the Panorama Task Manager

Click
Tasks
( icon_tasks.png ) at the bottom of the web interface to open the Task Manager, which displays details about all the operations that administrators initiated (for example, manual commits) or that Panorama or a managed firewall initiated (for example, scheduled report generation) since the last Panorama or firewall reboot. You can use the Task Manager to troubleshoot failed operations, investigate warnings associated with completed commits, or cancel pending commits.
  1. Click
    Tasks
    .
  2. Show
    the
    Running
    (in progress) tasks or
    All
    tasks (the default), optionally filter by type (
    Reports
    ;
    Log Requests
    ; or commit, download, and installation
    Jobs
    ), and select
    Panorama
    (default) or the firewall for which you want to see the tasks.
  3. Perform any of the following actions:
    • Display or hide task details
      —By default, the Task Manager displays the Type, Status, Start Time, and Messages for each task. To see the End Time and Job ID for a task, you must manually display those columns. To display or hide a column, open the drop-down in any column header, select
      Columns
      , and select or clear the columns as desired.
    • Investigate warnings or failures
      —Read the entries in the Messages column for task details. If the column says
      Too many messages
      , click the entry in the Type column to see more information.
    • Display a commit description
      —If an administrator entered a description for a commit, click
      Commit Description
      in the Messages column to display it.
    • Check the position of a commit in the queue
      —The Messages column indicates the queue position of commits that are in progress.
    • Cancel pending commits
      Clear Commit Queue
      to cancel all pending commits (
      available only to predefined administrative roles
      ). To cancel an individual commit, click
      x
      in the Action column (the commit remains in the queue until Panorama dequeues it). You cannot cancel commits that are in progress.
